FIRST PLACE – CHRISTY KEYES

Christy Keyes wins first place this year for a gorgeous yet satirical poster that utilizes color and text powerfully. Using a carnival theme, she shares the frustration that patients face every day as they struggle with a variety of symptoms and frustrations. Brilliantly done…. and the clear winner in this years contest!

SECOND PLACE – BECCA KEYS

Becca Keyes, Christy’s daughter, offers a delightful image with the most important message of all… that patients “believe” in the future and in themselves. She uses the color of IC Awareness Month beautifully!

THIRD PLACE TIE – ADDY WILSON

Addy Wilson’s portrait shares the often invisible face of IC. That patients can look so normal on the outside and yet, on the inside, feel so helpless. We must always remember that the “inner” IC patient needs love, comfort, support and encouragement.

THIRD PLACE TIE – NICOLE JOHNSON

Nicole Johnson entry is the counterpoint to Addy’s above. In it, she reminds us all that the gift of pain is empathy and compassion for others. She reminds us all that we are actually much stronger than we often realize.. and it is in that fight to regain our lives and reduce suffering that we truly shine.
